WSMHA Townhall Update
Submitted By Nathan Tratnik on Saturday, January 15, 2011
On January 10th, the WSMHA Board hosted a townhall to provide information and a discussion forum regarding recently proposed OMHA amendments to residency rules.
The townhall was attended by 35-40 members, including coaches, team managers and parents, in addition to the WSMHA Board members.

The WSMHA President, Don Easter, presented the proposed amendments and invited a discussion to clarify the origination of the changes, the implications for Stouffville as a hockey centre, as well as implications for other centres.

The evening was engaging and very thought-provoking, allowing for open dialogue amongst all attendees.  The implications for Stouffville pursuing an application to become a "AA" centre, or alternately remaining an "A" centre, were a focal point of the discussion.

The OMHA will be holding a meeting on January 23rd to present residency amendments, and while it is unclear if the proposal will pass as currently drafted, it does appear certain that some form of change to current residency rules will ensue.

The WSMHA Board of Directors expresses its thanks to all participants in this informative townhall, and encourages all interested parties to familiarize yourselves with the OMHA proposed changes and implications (available through the OMHA website).

WSMHA is entitled to send 21 delegates to attend the OMHA meeting on January 23rd.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Charlene Mason at the hockey office or Don Easter.  Space is limited.  We will strive to keep you informed of new developments ensuing from this meeting.
